Has Anybody Beat the Wordpress Blank Screen of Death?

7 replies
I have the WP screen of death on both my blog and login pages.

I know my wp-config db logins are correct.

There is nothing before <?php/

There is nothing after php');?>

I don't know what is wrong.

If there is an established Warrior out there that can help me with this, please let me know.

I will pay $10 to someone if they can fix this for me. It's probably nothing more than a quick tweak but I'm not familiar with WP.

    Delete all of your plugins from your wp-content/plugins folder, delete all of your themes from the wp-content/themes folder except for twentyeleven - make a backup of the folders first!

    If you still can't get in, you'll need to delete then re-upload WordPress files. Delete all but wp-config.php and the wp-content folder, then upload from a freshly-downloaded zip from http://wordpress.org/latest.zip.

    Odds are that a plugin is causing the problem - did you add any new ones just before your troubles started?

    Kenn and Steve - Thank you very much for your replies.

    Steve, I will try what you said. I did rename the plugins folder in hopes of deactivating the plugins as a non-referenced resource. Is that not the same?

    Kenn, thank you for your offer. I'll send you a pm if I can't fix.

      Yes, renaming the plugins folder has the same effect. Did that solve your problem?

    change this in wp-config.php and see error messages.

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);

    to
    define('WP_DEBUG', true);

    Are you using WordPress? Have you tried qSandbox yet?

    legitimatefreestuff: Personally I do believe you got it because of WP-Super-Cache problem (sometimes it caches a blank page). However there is always only one thing you have to start with. It's enabling "WP_DEBUG" as lordspace suggested above. This will expose all errors and warnings for your code (WP itself, themes, plugins etc).

    Only if that didn't help (the debug mode didn't bring up the error messages), you my go further with all those suggested shamanisms like "disable this, remove that etc..."
